Q.Aster Yellows: The Plants That Have Been In Compost Is This No Good Now? And Will Aster Yellows Live On My Plant Pots That They Were In
prior to planting. Thankyou. I I have put in the Bin 8 plants now would you advise me to get rid of them all or wait to see if they are infected: Can’t upload a picture as I have none on file.

I would just get rid of the plants that are affected. The insect that transmits the disease may not have injected the virus into all the plants.
Your pots should be fine. You might rinse them out well.
I also would not compost any affected plants. I would dispose of them in the trash.
